Michele Rousseau, coordinator of the Academic Testing Center, represented
MCCC at the National College Testing Association's (NCTA) 2004 Conference

Rousseau co-presented a 90-minute workshop to more than 100 conferees

establishing a policy for academic integrity, the epidemic of cheating
occurring nationwide, reasons for cheating, prevention strategies and
discussion of cheating confrontations. Rousseau also attended workshops

to join and serve on the 2002 Conference Planning Committee. MCCC has
